Contributing sentiments towards policy:

62% : However, Adelman remarked that the Henderson County Mine's reserves have "good coal that's marketable for domestic use and international use," and global consumption of coal is on the rise, thanks largely to growing economies in south Asia such as in India.
62% : The International Energy Agency reported that global coal demand surpassed 8 billion metric tons for the first time last year, and it is forecasting that it "will remain at similar levels in the following years in the absence of stronger efforts to accelerate the transition to clean energy" internationally."People who don't believe in the future of coal aren't paying attention," Schneider said.
57% : From there, coal will be carried by an existing above-ground conveyor some 11 miles to the company's coal terminal on the Ohio River near Uniontown.
